The makeup duo that offers the ultimate flawless coverage
Advertorial: Say goodbye to touch-ups throughout the day
When it comes to long-wearing and high-coverage foundations, the product you purchase bears the responsibility to last all day on your skin without moving or caking, especially into fine lines. An added bonus would be if your foundation still felt comfortable to wear, and not too thick or heavy on your skin while it delivered flawless coverage.
That’s not too much to ask, is it?
Well, we’ve found a makeup duo that is up for the challenge. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer stands up to these claims, and it can even be used in more ways than one. And when used in conjunction with Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage + 24-Hour Wear, an even skin tone and perfect-looking base can be achieved with ease.
Want to know why we’re reaching for these products this season? Read on to discover why they should be added to your makeup arsenal:
#1 / The foundation offers full coverage
As your complexion can change in tone and texture depending on the weather, season or your sleep and water intake, it’s important to be equipped with a foundation that can really give you all the coverage you could possibly need, without being too heavy on skin. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is a full-coverage base that offers up to 12 hours of wear, yet feels really lightweight to wear, which is a big plus.
The unique and breathable formula is also worth shouting about. Tiny spheres in the formula can boost hydration levels in skin, whilst polymers help the product glide on extra smoothly. The end result is a complexion that looks perfect and naturally matte all day long.
#2 / The foundation can be used in different ways
One thing that makes Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer stand out amongst other foundations is its unique applicator. The oversized doe-foot head allows you to use the flat side to swipe the foundation around your face before using a buffing brush (or even your fingers) to blend the base into your complexion.
Alternatively, if you want to apply the foundation to hard-to-reach areas like your nose, or you’re after extra coverage after blending your base, you can use the tip of the applicator to spot-correct any blemishes or conceal areas that need extra attention.
#3 / The foundation comes in a multitude of shades
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer boasts 22 shades in its range, so it’s extra likely that you’ll find a shade that matches perfectly to your skin tone. Plus, Clinique offers a free 10-day sample of this foundation all year round so you can try before you buy. Hint: Stop by each season to get re-colour matched to your skin tone.
#4 / The concealer can help boost coverage EVEN more
Whilst the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer is a multitasking product that works as a concealer in addition to an amazing foundation, some days you just need a whole lot of coverage to reach flawless status.
The new Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage + 24-Hour Wear is a super long-wearing concealer that can mask the most stubborn of imperfections (such as dark circles) for up to 24 hours… which is a lot of staying power. It also comes in an extensive range of 12 shades for your best possible skin tone match.
Plus, the formula dries to a waterproof and transfer-resistant film, and it won’t settle into fine lines or cake as the day wears on.
